Pragmatic Play are full-steam ahead with the release schedule this year and things are about to get juicy with yet another up and coming game, due to be released in March, Juicy Fruits Slot.
Juicy Fruits will have you mixing up all the fruits as you quench your thirst for big wins, with simplistic gameplay that makes it perfect for those who prefer a more straightforward way of playing, as well as those loyal to the classic fruity theme!
Pragmatic Play’s portfolio is expansive, with titles that have vastly different themes and gameplay mechanics, but the potential is always there, and with it, excitement.
Juicy Fruits certainly makes you a little bit thirsty, for both an ice cold smoothie and a massive 5000x win, but does it deliver?
In this Juicy Fruits Slot Review, we’ll be breaking down the key features of the game, as well its statistics to see what Juicy Fruits is all about, and what it has to offer!
You’ll see what we mean about how Juicy Fruits makes you a bit parched as you load up the game. The background shows the inside of a glass, with strawberries, oranges, lemons and ice floating around as water droplets trickle down the screen.
It certainly gets you in the mood for summer if anything else. Pimms and a barbeque in the sun? Go on then.
The music for Juicy Fruits is pretty as chilled as the glass of drink, but it’ll pick up a little bit as you start spinning. Every now and then you’ll hear the sound effect of a glass being poured, which is a nice touch that gives fidelity to the theme.
Overall, a simple yet effective theme, and you can’t help but commend Pragmatic Play on their graphics quality despite its simplicity.
In usual Pragmatic Play style, you’ll find that the betting options are expansive enough that they cover the needs for most players.
The lowest option starts at £/€0.25, and the highest option is £/€125.
It’s worth mentioning that Pragmatic Play have included an Ante Bet option within Juicy Fruits Slot.
This increases your stake, but it gives you double the chance to land the feature, with more Scatter Symbols present on the reels.
The Bonus Buy option is disabled while the Ante Bet is active.
The highest symbol in the game is the 7 Symbol, followed by the Watermelon, Rasberry, Kiwi, Strawberry, Bell, Plum, Orange, Lemon, Cherry and Lime. There’s a Wild Symbol as well, which is represented by the Crown and substitutes for all except for the Scatter Symbol.
Juicy Fruits is a 5×5 video slot with 50 pay lines.
In order to form a win, you’ll need to connect at least 3 matching symbols across any of the 50 lines, starting from the left-most reel.
The pay outs for symbols is okay, with 4 of the top symbol paying out 24x.
Your first impression of the Base Game might be that it’s a little dull, but things can get a little bit more interesting with the Wild Symbol.
In the Base Game, the Wild symbol may land as a 1×1, 2×2, 3×3, 4×4 or a huge 5×5 symbol! This can absolutely set you up with some colossal wins, especially if you get the full screen dream with a 5×5 wild.
Apart from that, there isn’t really any other features to speak of within the Base Game, but you might want to stick around for a bonus, where things can get real Juicy with the upgrading Wild symbol.
3 or more Scatter symbols trigger Free Spins in Juicy Fruits & you’ll start with 6 initial spins.
the Free Spins in Juicy Fruits is a progressive feature. When the Free Spins start, there will be a 1×1 roaming Wild on screen, which moves to a random position on every spin.
To increase the size of the wild, you’ll need to collect Scatter symbols. Every 3rd Scatter that you collect will increase the size of the Wild, and award a random number of spins, from 1-3.
The increases in size will be 2×2, 3×3, 4×4 and 5×5.
if you triggered the bonus with 4 Scatters, then you’ll have a head start with one of the scatters needed to progress already collected.
If you triggered with 5 Scatters, then you’ll have collected 2 right off the bat.
The Juicy Fruits Free Spins feature can certainly be an exciting one, but only when you get upwards towards the bigger Wilds.
Sadly, as is the nature with this kind of Feature, things can often fall flat rather quickly if you don’t get them early Scatter symbols, or you don’t progress up to a high enough level to get the bigger hits.
Those outside of the UK have an option to buy their way into the bonus, which will cost 100x your stake.
The Juicy Fruits Slot game may not be a game packed with features, it may not even be the usual extravagant and imaginative theme that you usually see from a Pragmatic instalment, but its still rich with potential.
The games saving grace perhaps is the fact that the 5×5 Scatter may land in the Base Game as well as the Bonus.
This gives you a little something to be excited about on every spin, and you definitely should be excited, because Juicy Fruits is capable of reaching wins of up to 5,000x.
The game will probably appeal more to those who are casual players, or those who are purists in the sense that they’re loyal to a classic fruit theme, but others can definitely find enjoyment in Juicy Fruits if they give it a chance.
It won’t be your favourite game, it probably won’t even be your favourite Pragmatic Play game, but it’s not a terrible addition to their portfolio by any means.
Juicy Fruits Slot is an upcoming Pragmatic Play game, available to play at most new casinos from 25.03.2021
